Pure Organic Cold Pressed Macadamia Nut Oil (Macadamia integrifolia)
Excellent skin care oil for all skin types. Macadamia Nut Oil is known as “the vanishing oil” as it is very readily absorbed due to it’s similarity to the fatty acid profile of skin. Macadamia Oil is very high in palmitoleic acid, one that our skin’s production of diminishes as we age.
Macadamia nut oil contains approximately 60% oleic acid, 19% palmitoleic acid, 1-3% linoleic acid and 1-2% α-linolenic acid. Some varieties contain roughly equal omega-6 and omega-3. Although macadamia is cultivated in many different parts of the world, the oil’s fatty acid profile is not greatly influenced by environmental factors. The oil displays chemical properties typical of a vegetable triglyceride oil. It is also very stable due to its low polyunsaturated fat content
